Fly Guys debuted in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. They fly around and carry items, including 1-Ups and rare Red Coins. Some of them fly back and forth in a set path, while others appear suddenly, move quickly and fly away if not hit in time.
Propeller Shy Guys sometimes appear on Yoshi's Story, carrying food that can be dropped by attacking them. Propeller Shy Guys also appear in the returning Yoshi's Island stage, reprising their background role.

This enemy from the Yoshi's Island series is basically a Shy Guy with a propeller on its head. It hauls items with it as it flies, so chase it down to claim a reward. Usually it's just food, but sometimes one will have some better prizes. You could say these ones are...pretty fly for a Shy Guy. No? Never mind.
